Love Is Never Lost

As an astrologer and spiritual counselor, the most common topic my clients want to discuss is relationships – woman or man, young or old, married or single – that’s the major concern for most people. It is certainly a loaded subject no matter what. When we’re alone, we yearn for a partner. Yet when we’re coupled, we bemoan the flaws in our relationship.

One of the most challenging steps on the spiritual path is to move beyond appearances. Our day-to-day minds cannot perceive the greater context of life. We only see what is in front of our faces and what seems to be true. It is bold to believe that the universe is constructed of and run by the power of love, especially when the world appears to be filled with hate and suffering. It is courageous to look in the mirror and tell yourself that you are lovable when you were brought up in an abusive home or are in a disempowering relationship. It is a risk to hold the idea that a wonderful partner is out there for you when you’ve been single and lonely for years.

Another metaphysical concept that is crucial to remember is the law of the conservation of energy. This is also a scientific theory stating that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. For example, ice melts into water and water evaporates into steam. The water is no longer visible, yet it still exists in the air and can form back into water or ice depending on environmental conditions. The same concept applies to love, since it is also under the same laws of nature as water.

When we start a relationship, it seems so free-flowing and refreshing. Love is like a happy bubbling river or a beautiful overflowing fountain. It has the strength and depth of the ocean and the delightful surprise of a endless underground spring. Eventually, many of our relationships imitate water in a less desirable way. The connection may seem to run through our fingers or even evaporate before our eyes. One day we wake up and love appears to be gone. Suddenly we are in an unhappy marriage, are single yet again or just feel miserably lonely. All those spiritual concepts about love seem to be a joke.

But the truth is we never love in vain. All our hopes and unfulfilled dreams went somewhere – nothing is ever lost in the heart of God. The energy of the love you received or gave out has not ceased to exist, it has merely changed form. Imagine it as being held in an “energetic storage bin.”

The Universe has a special storage space where the desires of your soul are being held for the perfect manifestation time. When the next romantic situation that is right for you comes forward in your life, that “stored love” will reappear from the ethers as a gentle, faith-restoring rain. It has to – it is a law of the Universe. Just like a cloud must release the water that it holds when the conditions are right, so the Universe will shower you with the love that is due you at the right time and place. This is why it is so important to forgive our lovers and keep our hearts open to new people and new possibilities. Even if you don’t want to leave your relationship, forgiveness opens the door to more loving and satisfying emotional patterns.

Give yourself the gift of cleansing your heart and mind of old hurts and disappointments. First forgive each bitter memory of unrequited or unsatisfying emotional situations. Release yourself from your own mistakes – what you wish you’d done and what you wish you hadn’t. The next step is more difficult. You must sit with that freshly cleaned and open heart – and wait for the time of re-filling. This involves much faith and patience. Instead of thinking of yourself as “empty,” meditate on the word “receptive.” Please use discernment to not fill your inner spaciousness with any old thing that happens by. Try not to repeat old patterns or grab for less than you deserve due to feelings of anxiety or desperation.

Most importantly, don’t give up on love – for love never gives up on you!
